Beautiful trail! Fairly flat up to Mt Pinos, but the trail gets a little more difficult if you want to continue to Sawmill Mountain and Grouse Mountain (which makes it about 10 miles RT).

Not too hard, great view from the peak.

healthy hike, beautiful views overlooking Pine Mountain Club and the valley. beautiful view of mountains.

Nice views of the town and surrounding mountains; even better if you are a fault line buff. Nothing is marked so easy to get side tracked on the trails around the campsite. Start and stay due west of the campground. There will be a moderate climb to start the trail.

I have been here twice and still have to do the complete loop. Both times I came out here, I saw one or two people but that was it. The trail starts at the campground where you’ll also see the picnic tables and bathrooms. Last time I hiked the bathrooms were open (summer last year) this time they were locked. They were clean though last time too. There is a dog park you will pass for the registered campers only, that is when you circle for parking. The trail is very easy to navigate and very pretty. When I have the time to spend there and do the entire loop, I’ll be back again!

It was super easy. The only thing is that there was snow and we were not ready for that. But fun never the less

Excellent summer run with beautiful valley views. Locked gate during winter, however; a tight gate bypass is available if you don't mind pin striping. (I fit a four door jeep down it) It is not mapped but this trail does connect to 8N04B and over to the Frazier Mountain lookout. Trail is rough,sharp stone for about 70% street tires are not recommended as they will get torn up by the stone. Slow progress until you reach 8N04B expect about 45-1hour drive one way.

Nice uphill climb. Mostly smooth dirt road. Little to no people. Views.

Super easy and fun trail. Did it for my annual New Year’s Day hike and the views were awesome! A little warmer than expected but still perfect weather.

Awesome view!

Beautiful trail, a quick in and out. Perfect for new hikers and families.

The trail mapped here is not the Lockwood Creek Trail, but rather, it is the West Frazier Mine trail. It eventually connects to the Lockwood Creek Trail, but not as it is shown on the trail map.
The trail shown is the old route for the West Frazier Mine Road. Most of the portion from Lockwood Valley Road to the first intersection (about 1.5 miles in) is now closed to vehicles, as they access this road from the Frazier Mountain Road instead. A left turn at the intersection would take you back to the beginning of the vehicle route. Continuing straight at the intersection takes you up the west side of Frazier Mountain where the West Frazier Tie Road veers to the left, taking you to the summit of Frazier Mountain. Continuing straight at this point will take you into Lockwood Valley and connect with the Lockwood Creek Trail.
Most of this route is a rocky four-wheel-drive trail, with several stretches where there is little to no shade. The climb is moderate, but manageable.
I've been over this road on a motorcycle and in a truck, and have also hiked a portion of it. The scenery is pleasant, though not what I would consider exceptional, so I prefer to drive over this route as opposed to hiking it. There are other places nearby that I prefer to hike instead.

Great hike. Less than a mile to the first great view of the valley.

We're not experienced hikers at all and this trail was a breeze! My 4 year old and 10 year old kids loved it. Lots to see and plenty of shade.

Easy hike. Good for kids or dogs with a large path, plenty of shade and not too steep.

Beautiful spot with historical Native American (Chumash) wilderness views. Watch out for big rocks, trunks, and roots on the path! Bring comfortable hiking shoes. I went yesterday 5/24. Weather is always changing, but the temperature was tolerable this day, especially in the shade. And there is an ample amount of shade throughout the wood. Will be back.

Looking to bag most of the highest peaks in the greater Bakersfield area, all in one hike? This is your hike. Most of the trail elevation grade is not aggressive, but you'll encounter a few good climbs. The advantage is there are multiple ascends/descents along this hike, which spares your legs a little. Make the extra trip over to Sawmill Peak, which offered the best views of the whole hike (in my opinion). Make sure to pack in all your water, you won't find any along the way.

The "trail" is really a service road, which could be accessed with a good offroad vehicle. The entry area of the trail was pretty gummed up when I went, which may present some problems if you are planning to drive in. Most people, from my understanding, will hike or bike this still. The grade is very gradual and easy to maintain until the summit. Continue on at least another 1/4 mile past the summit for even better views down into the cirque below. I went a few extra miles further, which was well worth the trip (even though it was uphill coming back out).

Very scenic, pretty wildflowers and a fairly easy forest service road to walk along. Well worth the drive to get out of town to go hiking.

BEST PLACE TO SEE A CALIFORNIA CONDOR! You gotta hike to the top but they are there. April is a great time to go. Been twice. Beautiful in the Chumash wildness, simply breathtaking. I would go there many more times if I still lived in California. One of my favorite places to Backpack. Quiet and peaceful.
